to collect sales tax for purchases made in 45 states. zain asher is joining us from new york. zain, how does this bill work? >> reporter: hey, wolf. it would basically end tax-free shopping online. right now as the law stands, you only have to pay online sales tax if the online store has a physical presence in your state. so, for example, a warehouse. if you buy something from amazon.com, and you live in washington, where amazon does have a warehouse, you currently do have to pay sales tax. if you live in illinois, though, you do not. so if this bill passes, online retailers will be forced to collect sales tax across the board. by the way, also, shoppers are technically supposed to pay sales tax by declaring their purchases on their tax return, but, of course, most people do not do this. this bill intends to level out the playing field. there are some exemptions. if you're lucky enough to live in a state where that doesn't have sales tax, for example, this will not apply. and businesses making less than $1 million in out of state purchases will also be exempt. wolf? >> only five states don't

on passengers who don't book flights directly through the airline's website. our zain asher is in new york. new fees for overhead bags? how would that work? >> you basically said starting this summer if you don't book on frontier's website and if you're not an elite member, by the way, you will have to pay to carry on your bags, $25 if you pay in advance $100 at the gate. you're also getting fewer frequent flier miles. frontier says one of the reasons it's doing this is because it's elite members have complained about overhead bins filling up before they get their bags on board. and they also want to reward loyal customers. frontier is already a low cost carrier, now they've said they're going to be an ultralow cost carrier. but it's only going to be ultralow cost, by the way, wolf, if you book your ticket at the right place. you have to go to their website. wolf. >> so if you pay to -- for your bag online it's $25, but if you do it at the airport you said it was $100? is that what you just said? >> absolutely right. $100 if you do it at the airport. >> to check one bag for $100? >> i know. it'

jersey. zain asher has beenwannabes mil. someone has to win eventually, right? >> reporter: and you never know, it could actually be you. you know what they say, you do have to be in to win it. and what tends to happen is that people who don't usually play decide that they're feeling quite lucky and people who do usually play start to buy multiple ticket. but if you are going out and buying like 10, 2030 tickets, it is important that you do not spend more money than of course you can afford to lose.,30 tick it is important that you do not spend more money than of course you can afford to lose. 30 tick it is important that you do not spend more money than of course you can afford to lose. it is $600 million. if you opt for the lump sum, you'll still walk away with roughly around $376 million. and just to put that in context for you, that is basically enough money to give a dollar to every single person in this country and at the end of it you can you would still have roughly around $60 million left over. but let's talk about chances. the chances of winning are one in 176 million. those are
correspondent zain asher joins me now from new york. zain, this is part of a broader problem that could end up getting worse, right? >> reporter: exactly, and it is troubling, joe, because whenever there is a disaster, earthquake or tornado as we saw in oklahoma where a lot of people are trying to use their cell phones at once, sometimes the calls will not go through. that's a shortage known as spectrum. think of it as wireless capacity. you can't touch it, can't see it, but this is really the lifeline of the cell phone market. the problem with spectrum is that there is a limited amount. you can't create more of it. there is a growing concern because there is more and more people using smartphones and tablets, the more the wireless capacity gets clogged and that's when you get things like poor cell phone service over time, and slower data speeds. now the entire world uses less than one exobite. that's expected to increase ten times. smartphone usage is expected to increase by 81% in the next five years. tablet usage by over 110%. so unless something is done, those dropped calls as you mentione

-gay attacks just this week alone. i want to bring in zain asher, live in new york. zain, you're covering this story. there have been six hate crime attacks in the last few weeks in new york including a mark carson, his death and more than 20 of these attacks alone in new york in the last year. police, what are they saying? are they at a loss to explain why this is happening, why we're seeing this surge? >> reporter: absolutely, poppy. everybody is at a loss to explain why. just to give you some perspective, hate crimes against gays have risen by 70% in the last year, that is obviously a huge amount. one theory is more people are simply coming forward to report these crimes. that is what people are saying to me. but everyone is saying hate crimes against gays are unfortunately a reality that they have to deal with all the time, but in this particular case they just feel as though more people are coming forward to report them or they're saying the most shocking part of this is that in a city as open and liberal by the way as new york, that this is happening here, that is a shocking thing.

jersey where cnn business correspondent zain asher is standing by. has the fever gotten intense already, zain? >> reporter: it is absolutely very intense over here, wolf. i actually caught one man in the middle of buying ten lottery tickets and another man telling me he spends on average $80 a day in general on lottery tickets and says that tomorrow would absolutely be no exception. i do also want to say if you are spending that kind of cash on lottery tickets it is very important that you do not spend more money than you can afford to lose. the jackpot right now as you know stands at $600 million. it is of course the second largest in u.s. history and you do have the choice of either annual payments or a lump sum payment and the catch of course with the lump sum is you get a little less money. you would get in this case $376 million. i personally would not be complaining about that. however, what i probably would complain about is the chances of winning. they are absolutely dismal. one in 175 million. those are your chances of winning tomorrow. actually that is an improvement because p
